The schools previously agreed to play each other in a Chick-fil-A Kickoff game Aug. 31, 2024, at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium. They also have a home-and-home arrangements set for Sept. 15, 2029, at Clemson and Aug. 31, 2030, at UGA and for Sept. 4, 2032, in Athens and Sept. 3, 2033, in Clemson.
Georgia and Clemson haven’t met since the 2014 season, when Georgia won 45-21 in Athens. Georgia leads the series all-time 42-18-4, but the teams have met only eight teams since the 1987 season, when the Bulldogs and Tigers ceased playing each other annually. UGA has won six of the past eight games in the series.
Though the game against Clemson in 2021 replaces a previously scheduled home game against San Jose State, UGA will have to pay San Jose State the full $1.8 million it was guaranteed for the game.
